From a growler via tap pour

A: Looks amazing to me. Turbid golden brown. Looks delicious

S: Orgasmic. Citrusy, a little malty, honey, and maple

T: Citrusy, no pine notes, which I love from an IPA. Long lasting bitter in the whole mouth. Light malt sweetness

M: Light carbonation feel. Thin.

O: I LOVE Mikkeller beers. With that being said, this is by far the worst beer I've had from Mikkeller but the thing is, it's not a bad beer at all.

Thanks to Jack and Staples Corner for this delicious growler fill! Poured to a tulip glass.

A - Pours a hazy amber eluding to an awesome 2-3 finger head thick and rich with micro carb bubbles dispersing random bb size toppers. A long lasting head which is thick and frothy providing great retention and heavy lacing.

S - There is a very mild whiff on this beer with some underlying tones of citrus hops and sweet malt(s), but not much on the coffee contributor. A semi sweet aroma stands prevalent.

T - Easy introduction to the palate with mild semi sweet citrus taste followed by a nice balance of malt finishing with some low key bittering and finally that hit of coffee. Though light in it's presence, the coffee finds it's place towards the finish which may be the perp regarding the strong sweet & sour finish.

M - Smooth for a medium bodied beer. Gentle introduction with a semi strong and mildly sour finish. Again, finally the coffee shows up !!! The more this beer leans towards medium room temperature the more the coffee announces it's presence. Perhaps a hidden quality if consumed under the proper circumstances.

O - While the coffee addition may be misleading upfront, this IPA is rather tasty overall. If one allows the beer to settle and gain some temperature the coffee element comes forward exponentially. By itself minus the coffee ingredient it is a very drinkable beer. With some patience, one might find that the "sniper" in this brew (coffee) can be found if the consumer will allow the beer to rest just like a great steak..

My prescription: Though a little pricey, this one is worth a taste. A nice marriage between two basic elements which do not go hand in hand. We mostly ascribe coffee flavors to beer regarding stouts. This one worked well for me as the coffee contribution was not the prevalent up front flavor aggressing or leading the IPA as expected in most stouts similarly titled, but this is an IPA, not a stout. Instead the answer to this label which challenged the beer's description, ended up being the finish which leads to a decent transition wrapping up business sip for sip with the rogue agent revealing it's identity mildly at the end. Since you can't get it all the time I'd say it's worth trying if you have the time.

Poured a deeply hazed orange color into my tulip snifter and put up a huge 2-1/2 finger head, large bubbles - slight smell of the coffee, not much in the way of hops - taste was kind of the same, and I didn't really like it -bitter- mouthfeel was on par with a decent ipa - I gotta say I was looking forward to this beer - thought it would be interesting, but I quickly lost interest - this is the first coffee/ipa I've had, and I would have thought Mikkeller would be able to pull it off, but not this time, not for me - I tried my 2nd and 3rd glass at different times of the day, to make sure, but no - it left me feeling 'not so good' -

Pours a deep golden color with a slight haze. Aroma of fresh coffee and hops, and not without some booze. In the taste, rich nutty coffee and some raw citrus, herbal, floral action. Bitter and a bit rough around the edges with the raw coffee flavor, still rather delicious. Medium bodied, well carbonated ale. Overall, a fine brew and proof coffee and hops can be a match made in heaven.

Tomahawk + Guji. Pours a murky amber with billowing soap bubble head, settles in a minute with small blobs of lace strewn about the glass. Smell: coffee over fruity... bitter chocolate...jammy - apricot, orange marmalade; resiny hopping. Taste: apricot jam, berry note and a "green" floral pop, then biscuit with jam and a bitter cocoa note that stays through the tangerine heavy finish. Medium bodied, creamy, active carb... sticky citrusy finish. Nice!

Mikkeller Coffee IPA is overall unique. Not an everyday beer but worth a try.

A: Cloudy orange color with little head.

S: Slight coffee and citrus aroma.

T: Presence of malt. Finish is dry with slight coffee aftertaste. Light hops taste.

M: Not much carbonation.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 750 mL bottle into a Russian River pint glass.

A: Pours a hazy, burnished gold with a good amount of visible carbonation. It tries to form a substantial off-white head during the pour, but it fades almost instantly.

S: Medium-roasted coffee, some pine and touch of dark citrus hops. I don't get a malt aroma here - I think the coffee is covering it up. Smells good though.

T: Follows the nose. Coffee and hops (grapefruit/citrus with some resin) up front. Then some sweet toffee and biscuit malts to round things out. Has a roasted coffee bitterness in the hang. It develops a peppery spice, or maybe a green coffee flavor, as it warms. It's not a bad flavor, but it grows obnoxious after awhile.

M: Medium body, low carbonation sensation, moderate alcohol presence.

O: This was interesting...a bit challenging, but interesting. Especially when cold, it was good. The peppery spice I could have done without. This isn't anything I'd go back to often, but the definition of something I'm glad I tried once (especially because DayMan never made it to Florida).

S: west coast hops, citrus, grapefruit, lemon

T: cirtrus hops up front mixes with a pronunced coffee bitterness, it actually works well together

M: medium to full with good carbonation

Poured from a 750 ml bottle into a footed tulip.

A: Golden, ruby hue. Pours a 1 finger, bubbly white head. Settles quickly, but not completely. Thick, persistent lacing. Head renews with force with each new pour.

S: Pine resin, a little roasted espresso, a hint of dark chocolate, and raspberry. All components light.

T: Bitter hops, with oak chips, and a bit of sweet dark chocolate.

M: Grainy and earthy. Bitter finish.

D: Sip and enjoy.

Atmosphere is okay. Fair head, and some spotty lacing. Nose is a great combination of piny, roasty, and fruit notes. Harsh, bitter hops, with some wood and chocolate. Earthy and bitter. Overall, this is pretty good quaff.

3.6/5  rDev -5.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Served on tap in a chalice glass

Appearance – The beer is served a bronze-reddish color with a two finger thick rocky white head. The head has a decent level of retention fading over a moderate level of time to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The coffee in the aroma wasn't as strong as I would have expected. The aroma overall was heaviest of citrus grapefruit hop as well as some herbal and piney smelling hops. Along with these smells are aromas of some breadiness as well as a little bit of caramel and some tangerine adding just a touch of sweetness to the smell overall.

Taste – Just as with the nose, the taste is very weak in coffee especially upfront. The main flavors, initially to greet the tongue, are of a IPA nature with flavors of a bready and lightly caramel and tangerine sweet taste mixed with a whole lot of grapefruit hop. As the taste advances, pine hop flavors come to the tongue with the sweeter flavors losing a little bit of ground. At the end, a light coffee flavor dose come to the tongue adding a different bitter dimension to the taste. The coffee combines with the other IPA flavors and a newly arrived herbal hop flavor to leave a rather mixed flavor IPA taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the medium side in thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is on the average side as well. Rather fitting for the IPA style, but nothing too exceptional.

Overall – A rather easy drinking and tasty IPA overall, but really lacking in the coffee I was hoping it would deliver. Nice, but not really worth the price you will likely pay.

Bought a bottle of this from the Tobu department store in Ikebukuro, Tokyo. Poured into a St. Bernardus goblet. This is a beautiful looking dark IPA, and the smell was outrageously tempting. A bitter hop with a coffee coat covering it. The taste was a little flat for me, to be honest, while it was still delicious. Overall, I really enjoyed this complicated, intriguing beer, and I would love to try it again sometime!

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Bottle: standard brown 330mL bottle, average craft label.

Appearance: I made the mistake of an aggressive pour at first, and the head exploded to four fingers before settling to a rocky two-fingers. Poured more carefully and found a two-finger off-white head sitting on top of a hazy orange-copper body. The head very slowly drops past a very rocky two-fingers to a solid ring around the glass. Amazing lacing too. Not much carbonation visible through the haze.

Aroma: after letting it warm out of the fridge for approx. 15 - 20 min, this beer offers up aromas of citric hops (and plenty of them!) and some subtle coffee. Definitely promising.

Taste: I didn't taste the coffee I was expecting with this beer. There was the prolific citric hops with some fantastic bread and biscuit malts backing up. Possibly a touch of coffee, but I would like to think I would notice if it was that strong as I am not a big coffee fan at all.

Aftertaste: lingers nicely, with some of the hop bitterness but not too much, and some malt hanging around. Very nice.

Mouth feel: for a highly-hopped IPA, the Koppi is quite smooth - almost oily in its smoothness. Medium- to- heavier in body with a lower but spiky carbonation. Brings the flavour across brilliantly.

Overall: I must admit that I approached this beer with more than a little hesitation, as coffee is one of the only things I cannot stand (though not so bad as a flavour in beer - go figure). In this IPA however the bread and biscuit malts and plethora of citric hops combine well with the coffee aroma / flavour to produce one of the better AIPAs I have had to date. Pretty damn expensive at over AU$140 a case (2013), but good for a 4-pack now and then.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Done in a horizontal tasting with To Ol Sleep Over Coffee IIPA and Bed And Breakfast from Brouwerij De Molen.

Eye: Weakest of the three here, pours with very little head and spotty lacing. Color on all of these are about the same-murky tan/light brown.

Nose: Hops right up front with some subtle coffee aromas in the background, the weakest in coffee aroma and in hop aroma of the three. It smells nice, but the other two just beat this one into submission. As it warms a bit the coffee is taking over the aroma and hops are falling off.

Tongue: Very nice! Hop flavor upfront, but not really much bitterness from them. Bitterness in this beer comes from the coffee flavor in the back. Coffee flavor lingers and after the swallow some hop flavor sneaks in there as well. This beer has a single track flavor, or really it would be a "double track" flavor-hops then coffee. Thats all there is to it. Mouthfeel is thin, this beer could benefit from a little more body, not much but just a little more. Carbonation is active and perhaps that also gives the illusion of a thinner than is body.

Drinkability: This is one definitely worth checking out. One that I would definitely buy again. Quite different from the To Ol Sleep Over IPA, this one is single minded whereas the To Ol is more complex and interesting. I can see myself buying this one again. Basically if you want something single minded=Mikkeller, complex and depth=To Ol, a big let down=Bed and Breakfast

Shared between friends and poured into Crown and Rose Pub nonics from 750ml capped bottle. Hazed dark bronze color topped with 3+ finger eggshell froth leaving behind a nice wall of lace marking each sip. Nose leads on to pine and grapefruit peel, but the coffee is right there with it. Not too sure of this. It's foreign territory as far as beer goes. Multiple hop characters - floral, earthy, and fruity. The coffee is not like I expected - it's very robust, but balances out nicely in this beer. I can't believe it's that good. It just works out somehow. There is also a buttery character that adds oil to the medium body making it on the velvety side. For such a strange blend, this beer is full of win. I won't hesitate to buy it again.

Really have looked forward to this one and was excited to find it at Argonaut liquors in Denver.

A: slightly hazy, orangish-gold, some light carbonation and light lacing.

S: Burnt, acrid coffee grounds and dirt. Lots of both. earthy, mushroom like hop smell is there too. The slightly musty, citrusy hops are barely there. I wonder what this would be like fresh, but it really isn't pleasant right now.

T: more earthy, burnt tasting, coal and ash. It tastes like chewing on old coffee grounds and some earthy weird hops. Not pleasant by any means. I didn't expect to struggle to drink a glass with my friends. There is some slight malt sweetness there, but that's the only redeeming quality.

M: slick, oily, slightly thin. light carbonation.

O: I really was let down by this. I figured at the worst, it would be weird and not meld well with the hops and coffee. Instead, the coffee character was disguisting, and the ipa character was nonexistent or barely there. What a mess. I know this is difficult to brew or nail, but this was a huge waste of excitement and money.

Poured into a snifter at my bottle share. Thanks, Jessie.

A: Amber/bronze with a tan half finger head that fizzled out quickly. Lots of lacing.

S: Piney hops. Subtle coffee aroma. Oh my, what do we got here?

T: And it tastes like...whoo, freaky. The grapefruit hops mixed with almost expresso-like coffee give the pallate an unusual sensation. Then you start to process it and it all blends in pretty darn nicely. Some light malts slide in. The finish is dry.

M: Medium with decent carbonation.

O: A great conversation piece, to say the least. A sipper. The double team of flavors sits in your mouth for a while in hop/coffee joy. This could be a pleasant brunch drink.

As far as I know my first from Mikkeller. Poured a massive head into the glass, off white tannish. Steller retention and lacing. Colour is an orange bronze brown and quite hazy.

Smell certainly has a pervading coffee bean aspect out of the glass. Also a strong and strange herbal aroma going on. Grapefruit and berries, very leafy. Hops are incorporated nicely. Although this is one of the strangest and hard-to-place noses I have encountered.

Taste has a firm malt base with a touch of sweetness, then bitter coffee and liquor linger overtop, flashes of alcohol. Hops are citrusy, earthy, and really nice. The incorporation of the coffee is really interesting, initially the raw bean from the nose then trends into a bitter dark espresso on the end. Finish is drying and bitter coffee grounds. Actually the flavours here are balanced quite nicely.

Moughfeel is moderate, nice light malty feel, carbonation is quite light and could use a bit more. Really dry at end, with a bit of liquory alcohol and espresso, generally smooth on the palate, with a really long finish.

Certainly a bit off-the-wall, but I'm not so quick to dismiss this as a novelty. Its a really interesting beer and marriage of flavours, once it settles a bit it is quite tasty, not over bitter but with a refreshing bitter coffee bitterness. Enjoyed it for the interesting approach, though not exactly convinced how it works together and priced too high.

330ml bottle. Tumbler glass. Enjoyed on agt´12. Pale orangish amber in color. Foggy appearance. Yellowish white foam quickly dissipates while leaves a thin layer on top. Strong resiny, piney & woody aromas. As expected from aromas, flavor presents a bitter resiny & woody touch. Unexpected coffee notes are present too. Full body. Moderate carbonation. Dense oily texture. Fruity hints & sharp bitterness shown into the finish. Subtle but increasing coffee flavor rounds the aftertaste. Interesting beer.

Coffee IPA pours a brownish cloudy color with a large head. There is a strong floral aroma with weak hints of coffee. The taste is stronger on the IPA side; stronger hoppy floral tastes, that finishes with the coffee flavors; sweeter end. Needs a little more carbonation, but still a good pretty full flavor. Overall an interesting beer, a change from routine IPAs.

Served in a perfect pint glass

A - It is murky. The color is dark amber, almost rust colored. I was expecting it to appear darker. There are some light amber to golden highlights. A rocky, tan head is stacked on top.

S - I immediately notice citrus. I do not notice much of a coffee aroma.

T - The taste has the coffee in it. It has citrus flavor as well. It tastes like a weak black IPA.

M - Medium

O - It is an interesting beer. There is enough flavor to make it quaffable, but not enough flavor to blow anyone's mind. The price is awfully high for a slightly above average beer.

A - Deep amber color with a very large, fluffy, light, bubbly, white head. Good retention with a nice layer of lacing.

S - Heavy on the hop aroma with bitter and sweet grapefruit along with a decent amount of pine. Not much coffee aroma but after searching for it there was a slight medium roast coffee along with a light touch of caramel malt. Sweet fruity aroma.

T - Starts with prickly bitter hop flavor. Loads of sweet and bitter grapefruit along with plenty of juicy fruit. Decent pine presence as well. Slight caramel flavor mid sip. Finishes with a slight coffee finish, not a heavy roasted stout flavor but just a light finish.

M - Medium body with slightly above average carbonation. Crisp and fairly spritzy feel.

D - Really drinkable IPA. Plenty of hop flavor with an interesting coffee twist on the finish. Drinkable and balanced IPA that I kept wanting to drink.

Notes: Interesting IPA that on its own is solid. The coffee on the finish is interesting, albeit subtle, but it doesn't add a whole lot to the beer. Solid IPA with plenty of hop flavor. Nice IPA but nothing too outstanding even with the coffee addition.

Pours a hazy amber color with a big, frothy white head that leaves little chunks of lacing.

Smells of grass and citrus hops.

Tastes of the clean hops upfront with a decent malt base. Hops lead off with grass, citrus, and a bit of pine. Malt base comes through and adds some slight fruit sweetness. Coffee is not particularly noticeable. Ends with a slight bitterness.

Mouthfeel is medium with a slightly assertive amount of carbonation.

Overall, this was a bit of a disappointment. The coffee is not present and the price ($13.30 for a 750mL) is not worth it.

Mikkeller Koppi Coffee IPA is a coffee IPA... I'm still not sure whether that is a good idea or not but this beer was a real failure.

A: Cloudy orange colour and no head. 2

S: Not a strong aroma. Sweet with some citrus. 3

T: Malty and a little oxidised with some citrus flavour. Actually not oxidised, I think that is just the coffee. The hops are subdued. The finish is is dry, coffee favoured and crisp. 3.5
